Is your Boeing 737NG cabin configurations in compliance with EASA regulations?


In response to the Certification Memorandum CM–21.A–CS–001 Issue 02, titled “Classification Of Design Changes To Cabin Interiors Of Large Aeroplanes,” released by EASA in April 2021, AES has successfully secured six Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for various seat type configurations on the Boeing 737NG, covering both 186 and 189 passenger configurations. Notably, the most recent STC covers the Safran Z100 series in a 189 configuration (STC Nr 10083547). AES is actively pursuing additional STCs, with several applications currently in progress.

The Certification Memorandum clarifies classification of changes to Cabin Interiors including the installation of seats that require a compliance statement against CS25.562, focusing on Emergency Landing Dynamic Conditions. It’s worth noting that this requirement has been a longstanding part of EASA Part 21 Appendix A of GM 21.A.91. However, with the release of CM–21.A–CS–001, EASA has clarified and reinforced the classification process for such changes, superseding past practices.

A key aspect highlighted in accordance with EASA B737 Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) IM.A.120 is that most seating configurations for the B737NG family must meet the requirements for JAR25 Chapter 13, excluding certain clauses. This mandates the classification of these changes as Major (STC). It is important to mention the requirement provided in CS26.60 (Additional Airworthiness Specifications), which requires dynamically tested seats to be installed in configurations manufactured post-26th February 2021 to be compliant with CS25.562.

AES remains committed to delivering aerospace engineering solutions that not only meet but exceed regulatory requirements, ensuring the highest standards of safety and compliance in the aviation industry.

Aerospace Engineering Solutions has successfully obtained EASA approved Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for Boeing 737NG galley replacement.

Galley installations (or replacement galleys), whether driven by factors such as damage beyond economic repair, alternative arrangement needs, or operational requirements for new operators, are essential to aircraft functionality. Sometimes, operators require specific galley insert arrangements that are difficult or impossible to achieve through galley modification. In such cases, the only viable solution is to replace the unit. AES not only prepares the engineering but also provides the necessary parts, including any structural and electrical provisions. We go the extra mile, performing any associated changes in the cabin, particularly in the areas local to the galley if required. This ensures a seamless transition, even if a new G2 galley, for instance, is larger or smaller than the original unit.

Our latest STCs provide the perfect solution:

EASA STC No. 10080018 – G1 and G2 galley replacement
EASA STC No. 10080919 – G4 galley replacement
EASA STC No. 10081077 – G7 galley replacement

Aidan O’Leary, Director of Engineering – Ireland, comments:

“We proudly lead the way in aerospace engineering, and our latest EASA STCs for the replacement/installation of Boeing 737NG family galleys are a testament to our unwavering commitment to revolutionizing aircraft interiors. As an industry leader in certified aerospace design and engineering, AES has achieved a remarkable milestone of over 3,000 successful interior cabin modifications. We are dedicated to delivering high-quality, cost-effective solutions that continuously adapt to the dynamic demands of the aviation industry.”
